Recently my wife and I had 8 hours between flights at Darwin airport. On the advice from a man we met in the airport, we asked at the Rydges Darwin Airport Hotel whether we could while away the time there. They were wonderful. They looked after our bags while we had drinks by the pool and ate dinner in the... More

Stayed for 2 nights for business. The Reception staff are helpful and polite. Room was clean, bathroom was ok, just a normal hotel room without any frills. The room has a small fridge but it only had milk for tea or coffee, which are supplied. There is a bottle shop approximately 2 kilometres from the hotel. The Chinese restaurant on... More

Really great place to stay. Very reasonably priced. Clean, comfortable and accessible. I stayed in a dorm (7 beds) and was pleasantly surprised. There are two bathrooms in the dorm room, and a curtain either side of the bed for privacy. There's a fridge in the room, a table and several chairs if you need to work, and ironing board... More

We stayed at this hotel on our way to Broome and again on our way home to Sydney. Keeping in mind that the hotel is very close to what is a very busy and noisy airport at the moment, we were very happy to find it was quiet inside. We have been to Darwin many times and did not go... More

The hotel was a typical Ridges' hotel, and I was pleasantly surprised to find one in the Northern Territory. The shuttle bus is easy accessed, though not really needed unless you have heavy luggage. The reception staff were friendly and welcoming. Check in / out was efficient. The rooms were clean and of a reasonable standard, if only there was... More

I had booked what I thought was a 2 bed unit through Qantas. Cancelled that booking. Re booked superior unit. Filled out online check in requesting a low level floor which was a waste on time. When we checked in I was handed a key for the fifth floor. I asked for a low floor and got level 2. We... More

This is an expensive hotel in peak season and is bellow average. for what you should expect from a major brand at an airport. The building is old and shows it. Lights did not work and had not been corrected and the check in was a farce because the system was down. The restaurants were fine and the service at... More
